1. Curt Casali (R) C
2. Eugenio Suarez (R) 3B
3. Yasiel Puig (R) RF
4. Matt Kemp (R) LF
5. Jose Peraza (R) 2B
6. Jose Iglesias (R) SS
7. Scott Schebler (L) CF
8. Kyle Farmer (R) 1B
9. Luis Castillo (R) P

Vs. Clayton Kershaw

That is certainly an interesting lineup.

If they do well, I'll applaud Bell. If they do as this lineup on first impression leads me to think they'll do, I'll crush him. Not sure why Votto is sitting - Lou Gehrig and Cal Ripken never sat, analytics be d...ed.

Baseball is becoming unrecognizable. Different game than I grew up watching.

Seems like Bell picked 4 RH hitters he thinks are best equipped to hit Kershaw and are hitting them 1-4. The rest seems fairly random to me, not sure how that was derived.

Hope they win, you never know.

Unusual batting orders and defensive alignments are only a part of it. Baseball is so different today, as compared to the 1950s and 1960s when I grew up - just read the SI article on baseball’s use of technology and analytics.

The game is getting much more sophisticated - whether it’s a better game to follow and watch, the jury is definitely still out.

Ron Madden

Before the season started Bell said he was gonna give Votto and the rest of the starting lineup more days off this year, in order to keep them all more fresh, healthy and rested for the entire season.

Guys get cheers when they get hits or make nice defensive plays. Puig got off to a rough start at home.
Popular players always get a big reception the very first time they return home, too.
Add to that the weather is nice and LA was in the WS last year, and there's just a couple more butts in seats to cheer in the first place.

With a guy like Kershaw on the mound, you go on the first move. If you guess right (which you do most of the time), then you steal the base easily. But when you don't, you look foolish. Getting caught happens sometimes.
